With the TV moved downstairs Carson now has a cozy reading corner in the living room (which I’m referring to as The Parlor) with mounds of marshmallowy pillows to crawl around on and sink into. I searched the Internet over trying to track down floor pillows that were both attractive and functional (these are the times I wish I could sew) and was ready to just purchase a dog bed when Carson’s nanny Erika made the brilliant suggestion to check out TJ Maxx.
The whole family has been enjoying the comfy alcove. The space is roomy enough to allow Jason or I to join Carson for a bedtime story and this morning I snuggled up with my mug of coffee and laptop and caught up on the daily news before the rest of the house was awake. And although it hasn’t happened yet, I know it’s just a matter of time before Madi decides it’s more comfortable than her own bed and curls up for her afternoon nap.
